Remember, up until recently, big auto wasnt capable on doing major" in drive " tuning. Not saying the technology wasn't there, just it wasn't in the cheap cars and the expensive cars the owner usually didn't care.

In 'Mericuh, driveability is a holy grail but not well defined.

I remember looking at 28 a liter for ethanol and couldn't do the math fast enough to see if it ws a cheaper fuel before going past the off ramp on the freeway. Next off ramp was generally 20 miles down the road.
2000 F250 7.3 CC 20+ MPG @ 10000 #
2013 Golf tdi 47.5 mpg neutered, 1500 mi beer run
1988 Ranger EV Volt batts>> 18,000 MPG and climbing. Rag overhaul.
